An unlikely wardrobe staple, you say? What has once been considered a ‘trendy’ item has proven to have a lot of staying power over the years: the faux fur vest. Personally, I have loved them for as long as I can remember (and have amassed quite the ever-expanding collection to prove it). Not only do they look chic and cozy, they offer practicality as well: throw one over a blouse for texture and a bit of warmth, or over a chunky knit sweater on the coldest of winter days. I often wear mine on really chilly days at the office – no blanket needed. Admittedly, thought, I sometimes – ahem, oftentimes – do keep a blanket (faux fur of course!) wrapped around me at work as well.
So there you have it. The faux fur vest is not just a pretty little thing: it is a versatile layering piece that provides oodles of warmth when the temps fall below zero.
